The fight and vote for freedom will take on a new vigor if the Scottish folks vote for and achieve their independence from London on Sunday. The world will sit up and take notice and many, like the Catalonians in Spain will increase their desire for independence from Madrid, a move the Central governments like Spain abhor.
Britain’s international partners are aghast, mostly in silence, at the possibility that one of the leading Western powers could break up and turn in on itself if Scotland votes for independence from London.
The campaign for Scottish independence is driven by anti-Englishness, according to the United Kingdom Independent Party or UKIP leader Nigel Farage. "The vote is about secession from England and Mr. Cameron epitomizes all that the Scottish people viscerally loathe about England." However he adds: "The problem for the Scots is that if they vote yes next week, they will not get independence. Rather, they are voting for rule by Brussels. As Cameron has brutally discovered, no EU member is truly independent. The Scots’ rejection of the way in which Westminster operates is not unique to them. The English and Welsh feel it, too. Millions of voters are rejecting the entire British political class.”
Many fear such a split would foreshadow a British exit from the European Union. Others fear it would set a precedent, boosting separatism elsewhere in Europe. Independence campaigners from around the continent have underlined this by flocking to Edinburgh to support the "Yes" campaign and draw lessons for their own struggles.
Hundreds of thousands of Catalans packed the streets of Barcelona to demand the right to vote on a potential split from Spain, their ambitions boosted by the independence referendum in Scotland.
If proud but tiny Scotland can do it — which polls suggest is a distinct possibility — then America’s 28th state, Texas, will certainly take notice. If any state is fed up with the rest of America, it’s Texas. Republican Gov. Rick Perry floated the idea of seceding from the United States in 2009, though he later backpedaled. A petition for Texas to “withdraw" from the United States, lodged on the White House’s “We the People” Web page, gathered 125,000 signatures before voting closed in 2013. A group called the Texas Nationalist Movement has nearly 190,000 likes on Facebook.
Texas is not alone though. Many Americans don’t want to take their country back. They just want to leave it behind. After President Obama’s reelection the White House petition website was flooded by a series of secession requests, with malcontents from New Jersey to North Dakota submitting petitions to allow their states to withdraw from the union.
Most of the petitions submitted came from solidly conservative states, including most of the Deep South. But a handful come from the heart of blue America – relatively progressive enclaves like Oregon and New York. All told, petitions have been filed on behalf of 20 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.
There are always violently opposing opinions about secession from strong federal authorities. “Anyone who wants their state to secede from the union is someone whose brain has already seceded from their body,” said John Andrews, director of the conservative Centennial Institute at Colorado Christian University. So violent in fact that millions die in civil wars than allow people to peacefully go in their own way.
Charlie Stross writes, “In the long term I favour a Europe—indeed, a world—of much smaller states. I don’t just favour breaking up the UK; I favour breaking up the United States, India, and China. Break up theWestphalian system. We live today in a world dominated by two types of group entity; the nation-states with defined borders and treaty obligations that emerged after the end of the 30 Years War, and the transnational corporate entities which thrive atop the free trade framework provided by the treaty organizations binding those Westphalian states together. I believe the Westphalian nation-state system isn’t simply showing its age: it’s creaking at the seams and teetering on the edge of catastrophic breakdown. My feeling is that we’d be better served by a group of much smaller nations working in a loose confederation or treaty structure.”
Steve Eichler, CEO of TeaParty.org, said “We’re getting shows that people believe that their elected state leaders are more in tune with their needs than those of the federal government. People are feeling disenfranchised, they’re feeling a loss of voice, and they just don’t know what else to do,” he said. The Oregon petition argues that the federal government is guilty of an “abuse of power” by forcing “unconstitutional laws over [its] own citizens.” Obviously the federal government does not feel this way and would fight its citizens then change.
The Big Want to Get Bigger
President George Bush in a speech to Congress on September 11, 1990, said, "[The war in Iraq is] a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times…a New World Order can emerge." Many feel that the drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining super-capitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control. More big government, more rules, more spying with as much authoritative control authorities can get away with.
"Does the Bible prophesy a one-world government and a one-world currency in the end times?" Answer: The Bible does not use the phrase “one-world government” or “one-world currency” in referring to the end times. It does, however, provide ample evidence to enable us to draw the conclusion that both will exist under the rule of the Antichrist in the last days.
The New World Order is theorized by some to involve a group or groups of elitist people bent on ruling the world through a single worldwide system of government. The appeal of this New World Order lies in its proposal to free the world of wars and political strife, and its promises to eradicate poverty, disease, and hunger. Its purpose is to meet the needs and hopes of all mankind through worldwide peace. Independence movements are sick of big centralized governments and are moving in the opposite direction thirsting for local control over ones destiny.
Governments Don’t Care About the People
Do you believe the government is there for the common good and that the people who staff it are selfless crusaders for justice who are valiantly trying to do what is best for you and me? In the video above Thomas E. Woods, Jr. insists that what the government is actually is a parasitic institution living off the labor of its subjects as it engages in activities that are morally corrupt.
Woods speaks about how Murray Rothbard, the economist, changed his (Wood’s) mind about war. It is not my usual type of video to listen to or post but I found this man very interesting and the subject very poignant. He jokes about the federal government but talks seriously about how it engages in moral abominations and gets its citizens to go along with smiles, no matter how many thousands or millions of people suffer and die.
After reading Murray Rothbard’s book, Anatomy of the State, Woods concluded that we can throw our civic books in the trashcan. The state is looking to take care of itself, not the public. With big central governments and banks the individual is subservient to the state. Rights and power reside in and derive from the state, not the individual. United Nations documents speak of collectivism and socialism. They claim that private ownership and management of property is not to the benefit of the human race.
We do not have to wait for any New World Order to become surfs to the controlling elite. They have been stealing the world blind for ages and are working harder than ever to take away people’s liberty and rights. Governments philosophy everywhere today is that the State will look after you for your best interests. This is exactly what socialism and communism are. The government becomes involved in every aspect of personal life.
In the west the American/European financial elite of immense wealth and power with ancient historical roots controls the politicians, the courts, the educational institutions, the food, the natural resources, the foreign policies, the economies and the money of most nations. And, they control the major media, which is why we know little to nothing about them.
For most of history the world has been ruled by powerful elites who wielded absolute power over their societies, controlled the wealth and resources of their known world, and dominated their people by force. The New World Order basic aim is to restore this model of totalitarian rule on a global scale and they are doing quite well in their efforts.
"We are ruled, though it may be difficult to imagine, by a small dynastic power structure, largely consisting of powerful banking families, such as the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, and others. They emerged in controlling the financial system, extended their influence over the political system, the educational system, and, through the major foundations, have become the dominant social powers of our world, creating think tanks and other institutions which shape and change the course of society and modern human history," wrote Andrew Gavin Marshall.
"The global elite thrives on war and widespread human misery, on death and destruction by design,” wrote Mujahid Kamran and that is why I hope that the coming financial collapse gets so out of hand that it brings down even those at the top of the human heap.
"Ever since the days of Henry Ford, the Economic Elite have needed a thriving US middle class to increase growth and profits, but now, in the global economy, they view the US middle class as obsolete. They increasingly look globally for profits and they would rather pay cheap labor in countries like China and India," wrote David DeGraw.
The entire middle class is under pressure around the world. The world is facing a global jobs crisis that is hurting the chances of reigniting economic growth and there is no magic bullet to solve the problem, the World Bank warned recently. Things are not going to get better they are going to get a whole lot worse as money velocity continues to decrease, credit becomes less available, more jobs are lost, incomes decrease and governments continue their madness of borrowing money from the future that can and will never ever be repaid.
The world has always been and remains a highly dangerous place. Hundreds of millions who have lived in comfort in the recent past are going to be confronted with something that they are ill prepared for. Obviously the military and other elite power groups understand what is happening. Our present financial system is robbing the masses and is on its way to a depression-type grave. What we have is a situation that people would want to run from if they could.
Human beings aspire to freedom but governments exist to steal, trample and abuse people’s freedoms and rights. It is difficult to believe in the universal value of democracy and the enormous benefits it can offer to people because the rich and powerful have taken the concept of democracy and made a mockery of it. Democracy is a laughing matter in the United States.
Sooner or later we will come to our senses and fight for our freedom when enough of it has been stolen from us though fighting is not exactly going to get us anything but the boot from security forces. If the elite have their way we will have a freedom-less-age and they will use Ebola, war, violent climate change, water shortages and anything else they can get their hands on as an excuse for humanity’s need of their power and direction.
Jeff Thomas, writing for Casey Research wrote:
“They know that, very soon, the façade of "economic recovery" will come tumbling down, and they have no intention of allowing the populace to have the basic freedom of removing them from power, once the veil has been removed from the lie that a solution is in the works. Political leaders, whose hold over power is in danger, will always do whatever is necessary to retain that power.
As regards warfare, it is interesting that none of the pundits who discuss the subject in the media ever raise the question, "How can a country that is facing bankruptcy possibly fund a war—traditionally the most expensive undertaking for any country in any era?"
